Show Me the Monet, Series 2 Episode 2 of 15

41-year-old jazz musician Adrian, from Bristol, used to eke out a precarious living busking and creating pavement art in his youth but now he's decided to see if he's got what it takes to make it as a professional artist. His detailed and exhaustive pencil drawing entitled 'Some Kind of London' took a year to complete. But will his painstaking efforts be rewarded?

38-year-old professional sculptor Brendan earns a living from his art and from mentoring budding artists, he's hoping his appearance in front of the Hanging Committee with his porcelain and stoneware piece will catapult his career to the next level.
